Campaign Totals – Top 15 organisations

In my final post about the Campaigns Totals survey that I’ve been running over the last few months, I’m going to take a look at what the results tell us about the organisations running these campaigns.

I’ve already noted that actions are being generated by a vibrant civil society, and that through my survey actions from 66 organisations were named in the responses, and that excludes the 76 actions that I wasn’t able to identify an organiser for.

The table below shows the top 15 organisations by actions generated, and the only organisations to generate more than 20,000 actions in the 12 months of the survey;

It’s interesting to note that the vast majority of actions are being generated by charities or campaigning organisations, like Greenpeace who because of the way their work is considered aren’t able to take advantage of ‘charitable status’ as opposed to trade associations or other corporate lobbying groups.

With regard to the ‘top’ issues that actions are being generated on;

  1. Sustainable Development  – 57 actions including 25 on Climate Change and other actions on bio-fuels, oil, nuclear and energy policy.
  2. International Development – 54 actions including 11 on debt and other action on aid spending, women’s rights and water/sanitation
  3. Animal Welfare – 14 actions including on issues such as circus animals and battery hens.
  4. Public Services – 12 actions including a number focusing on cuts.
  5. Tax policy – 10 actions

  1. I don’t think making a list of the ‘Top 15 organisations’ based on campaign outputs is the best way forward. All of those letter/emails/postcards could have just gone in the bin.

    • Certainly not suggesting that these are the 15 ‘best’ campaigning organisation. Simply reporting the output of an extensive study that I did to see which organisations were able to generate the most campaign actions in 12 months. Do have a look at here for some more about the whole project.
